Patrick Stewart Confirms He'll Be Reprising Professor X, or He Just Made Some Weird Innuendo
Patrick Stewart: Professor X again? Or obtuse old perv? The thespian has graciously provided an argument for either side.
When it was announced that the famous Days of Future Past story arc would serve as the basis for the next X-Men sequel, one of the more exciting implications of the news was that the storyline could serve as a bridge between First Class and the earlier (though chronologically later) films, allowing for some connectivity and the opportunity to sell a big "X-Universe" Blu-ray boxset shaped like Ian McKellen's head. So, when Sir Patrick Stewart agreed to answer some questions in a panel at the recent Montreal Comic Convention, naturally the conversation turned to whether there was the possibility he might return to the role of Professor Xavier, and Stewart's response seemed to indicate that indeed he will reprise the role. Or, equally, it indicated that he's using "reprise" as a bizarre euphemism for wanting to have sex with all his sexy former co-stars.
... the Englishman gave a knowing smile and spoke the words many have been waiting to hear: "I think there is every possibility."
He proceeded to enthusiastically run down the list of his female co-stars: "Halle Berry! Famke Janssen! Rebecca Stamos! Anna Paquin!" The crowd roared back with delight, opting not to point out his mistake regarding Rebecca Romijn's current last name. He continued, saying "yes, I'll be reprising..." only to be cut off by his son Daniel, who proceeded to throw out the names of his father's male co-stars
Way to spoil the party, Danny.
